Sunday Dare, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, has slammed Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr for treating players from the Nigeria Professional Football League unfairly (NPFL).
Rohr has been chastised since taking over as head coach for not inviting more NPFL players to the national squad.
According to reports, the 68-year-old German tactician entrusted the Super Eagles’ management to Austin Eguavoen, the Nigeria Football Federation’s Technical Director, for this weekend’s friendly against Mexico, maintaining that he was only engaged to coach the “A Team.”
Dare urged Rohr to take his job more seriously during a visit to the players on Tuesday, June 29, prior of their trip to the United States on Wednesday.
“His attitude towards home-based players is unacceptable, it is negative to our football development in this country. I call on the NFF to call him to order. I call on the NFF to hold him by the content of the letter of his contract, but beyond that, he needs to shut up and do the work for which he was hired to do. He talks too much,” he said.
